Last year at Lent I had the blessing of being in a covenant relationship where my prayer partner and I promised to pray three times a day and hold each other accountable by texting each other. I am very happy that we have re-established that relationship this year, and there are some very specific things we will be in prayer about for each other.
Also starting tomorrow at the church I serve will be an 11 week bible study on the Gospel of John. I taught this class at the church I previously served and it was a true blessing to be able to get a glimpse of Christ's divinity through these writings. There has also been a request for scripture passages to be read each day and some reflections to be shared. So... here goes the holy reading schedule for this week beginning with tomorrow, Ash Wednesday. Reflections will follow on each day. I won't make a promise as to what time a day I'll post these just because I know myself a little too well and know that "SQUIRREL!!!" is alive and active in my life. (See the movie "Up" if you don't get that reference....)
Ash Wednesday (March 9, 2011) Lectionary for Ash Wednesday is Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21 - or - Hebrews 3:7-15.

Friday March 11, 2011 - Acts 13:44-52

Sunday March 13, 2011 - Lectionary passages: Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7; Psalm 32; Romans 5:12-19; Matthew 4:1-11 (I usually preach from OT and NT and the liturgy for the worship service draws from the others.)
Blessings to each and every one of you in this Lenten season!
